    I Am A Mix?

    I Don't Have Munchausen But I Have Been Really Hurt By One Who Did

    I'm 14 and "suffer" from this awful syndrome.

    I often randomly say a part of my body hurts just so my mom will do something. I had pneumonia in June and really wish that it would have been a bigger more long term infection. I feel jealous when I read about cancer patients suffering and wish I could be among those people. I...
